5 Ways To Add New Style To Your Kitchen

5 Ways To Add New Style To Your Kitchen

Feb 13, 2019

It’s been said that your kitchen is the heart of your home. This means that your kitchen is probably the first place in your home to start showing wear and tear - at some point, it’ll be time for an update!

This can seem like a daunting task if you don’t know where to start. Not to mention, a full kitchen renovation could quickly become expensive.

Ready for the good news?

There are ways to start updating your kitchen (and adding some style!) without breaking the bank.

Repainting Kitchen Cabinets

Your kitchen cabinets receive an enormous amount of use. When you installed them, they were probably the hilt of fashion. Or, perhaps you moved into a home that had well made, but older styled cabinets. Although you can replace your cabinets, repainting them is a quicker, cheaper alternative.

Some of the benefits of repainting your kitchen cabinets include:

  • Faster Process - Painting your kitchen cabinets is much quicker than replacing them
  • More Opportunity for Customization - Pick and choose your colors and finishes
  • Cost-Effective - Repainting your cabinets costs a fraction of the cost to replace them
  • Convenience - A complete replace will completely disrupt the flow of your home

If your kitchen cabinets need a refresher, explore the affordable option to repaint!


Go bold with your island

A popular new trend is to paint your island an accent color. This will add a fun change to the monotony of a single colored cabinet scheme, without overwhelming the entire style of the kitchen.

White cabinets have made a strong comeback in recent years, and a color like Sherwin Williams 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay, would make a wonderful focal color for your island.

Two tone kitchen cabinets

While you are considering repainting your cabinets, explore the recent trend of mixing up the colors. Two tone cabinets add visual interest and, like the color accented kitchen island, can create a focal point in the space.

Two tone kitchen cabinets can be used to define your space as well. For instance, a darker color on the top half of your cabinets gives a cozier feel to the room. Darker cabinets on the bottom are also a popular choice.

Accent walls

Accent walls define the space in your kitchen. They are an awesome way to add an exciting pop of color without overwhelming the space. In addition, the accent color can be used to unify other rooms in your home.

Consequently, an accent wall can be a great creative outlet. Try chalkboard paint for a dramatic, but useful look!

Spice up your backsplash

Backsplashes are useful, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! Older kitchens may already have brick backsplashes. Did you know that brick can be painted? Why not choose a fresh color that will open the space.

There are many options for backsplashes. Some are more practical, and some are geared towards adding visual interest. Choose a material that will hold up to heavy use over time, but also fits the feel of your updated kitchen.

Looking towards the future

Not only are these affordable updates that you can make to your home, they also add resale value. Keeping your kitchen up to date and stylish is not only an asset to yourself, it is also an investment for the future.

Today we had Josh and his crew install a beautiful concrete coating on our garage floor.
They were on-time, polite, meticulous and extremely professional. Josh met and walked with us through the project area explaining the coating process and answering all our last minute questions. Then they went to work, and worked diligently all day. The result is gorgeous!
They cleaned up after themselves-leaving nothing behind except a perfect finished product and smiles on our faces.

Next we are having them paint the garage walls-I'll post photos when it's done!
(Jennifer, Stephanie and Kimberly were also wonderful in the planning process. They worked to accommodate our time restraints and budget needs to get this project off the ground-with estimating, proposals and scheduling. Thank you ladies!)

Our home just got painted and we're very pleased with the quality of the work. Thanks to Andrei, Julian, Jeff and Robert. They were all real pros and did an excellent job. They were always on-time, and more importantly we communicated well throughout the job to ensure we got what we wanted. We've never had painting done before, and were impressed with their attention to detail. Were sun and weather beat up our original paint the most, they made sure to apply extra coats. Great work!

We just had the exterior of our home in Riverbank painted by Lancaster Painting. The process from stat to finish was a very professional experience. The office staff that worked in creating the bid and walking us through the process was very professional. The painting crew, led by Kurt, did an outstanding job. There were very professional in dealing with my family. They were extremely knowledgeable about the painting process and thoroughly answered all of our questions. And they were punctual and complete the job ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering having their house painted.

I recently used Lancaster to paint my two story house. I could not have been more pleased! I had Toby as an estimator, Sergio was the foreman and his crew Jaciel and Donald were fantastic. Their attention to details was excellent. I had shutters installed and they did a great job painting and installing them. They were on time and very professional. At the end of each day they would clean up, which was great.

Lancaster take pride of their work, now I understand why they have a high rating. I would definitely recommend them!

The crew from Lancaster recently completed interior painting at my home and I could not be happier with their work. The project leader, Raul, was friendly, professional and super helpful. The price was reasonable for the amount of work done. I was astonished on how well the house was prepped, how quickly the work was completed, and how clean the crew left my house. It is clear to me how they received top reviews from my family who had exterior work done by Lancaster in the past. Amazing job, thank you for the excellent customer service and the beautiful, fresh walls!

This is my second review. I had lancaster back to paint my ceilings, master bedroom and living room. The painters were very professional and accommodating while they were in my home for 2 days. They moved furniture as needed and even vacuumed up before they left! They have a warranty program for 2 years :)

Thank you so much for making my home feel new again!

Lancaster painting is the go-to paint company! They do excellent quality work and are more than friendly and accommodating to your needs. We recently had our kitchen cabinets repainted and they turned out better than we imagined. Our project leader assured us on everything, and they even finished when they said they would. QUALITY YOU CAN SEE! Kim the receptionist is a sweetheart, our consultant was extremely knowledgeable and very well versed on how to convey our needs in terms we understood. Most of all or painter Ashoor was awesome. Super friendly, excellent painter, made sure our brand new home stayed in new condition while he painted, and even made sure an extra touch ups we saw or he saw were taken care of immediately. He didn't leave our home until he knew his work was completed to our and his quality standards. Would HIGHLY recommend this company if you need any painting done, especially cabinets.

Pictures below are before and after. Before was brown, after is Swiss coffee white and restorative blue.

Lancaster just finished repainting the exterior of our business. The price was very reasonable and the employees are all top notch. Our building is a historical building and we had it painted the same colors to maintain its history. The results from Lancaster were perfection!
